Assistant Teaching Professor,
The Pennsylvania State University
After two tours as an officer in the Marine Corps and the completion of a PhD in the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences at Pennsylvania State University, Victoria McCausland spent four years engineering support programs for Gold Star families across the entire Naval Special Warfare community.
Through her work, McCausland unites her past to the present by directing the efforts of her personal leadership project to the families of our nation’s fallen military heroes. During PLS, McCausland focused on developing a program that facilitates legal services and promotes federal legislation thereby enabling Gold Star families to act against those who seek to profit off their loved one’s legacy of service without prior consent.
